PITTSBURGH (AP) - Pitt’s offense is built around running the football, so the Panthers’ dilemma wouldn’t seem to be much of a problem at all.

They have two running backs capable of reeling off 100-yard games. Dion Lewis did it enough times last season that he was chosen as a second-team All-American. Ray Graham has done it three times in the Panthers’ last four games.

Having two effective runners doesn’t necessarily guarantee offensive continuity or success. The Panthers (2-3) often spend the first half sorting out which running back is on that day, an issue that never got resolved during a 23-17 loss at Notre Dame because an 14-point deficit forced them to throw more than usual during the second half.
